Pharmacological action

Combined antibacterial drug, contains sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim.

Sulfamethoxazole, similar in structure to PABA, disrupts the synthesis of dihydrofolic acid in bacterial cells, preventing the incorporation of PABA into its molecule.

Trimethoprim enhances the action of sulfamethoxazole, disrupting the reduction of dihydrofolic acid into a tetrahydrofolic - active form of folic acid, responsible for protein metabolism and division of the microbial cell.

It is a broad-spectrum bactericide.

It is active against Gram-positive aerobic bacteria: Streptococcus spp., Including Streptococcus pneumoniae (hemolytic strains are more sensitive to penicillin), Staphylococcus spp., Bacillus anthracis, Listeria spp., Nocardia asteroides, Enterococcus faecalis, Mycobacterium spp. (including Mycobacterium leprae, excluding Mycobacterium tuberculosis); Gram-negative aerobic bacteria: Neisseria meningitidis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Escherichia coli (including enterotoxogenic strains), Salmonella spp. (including Salmonella typhi and Salmonella paratyphi); Vibrio cholerae, Haemophilus influenzae (including ampicillin-resistant strains), Bordetella pertussis, Klebsiella spp., Proteus spp., Pasteurella spp., Francisella tularensis, Brucella spp., Citrobacter spp., Enterobacter spp., Legionella pneumopbila, Providencia, some species of Pseudomonas except Pseudomonas aeruginosa), Serratia marcescens, Shigella spp., Yersinia spp., Morganella spp., as well as against Chlamydia spp. (including Chlamydia trachomatis, Chlamydia psittaci); for gram-positive anaerobes: Actinomyces israelii; in respect of protozoa: Plasmodium spp., Toxoplasma gondii; pathogenic fungi: Coccidioides immitis, Histoplasma capsulatum, Pneumocystis carinii, Leishmania spp.

The drug is resistant to: Corynebacterium spp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Treponema spp., Leptospira spp., Viruses.

Inhibits the activity of E. coli, which leads to a decrease in the synthesis of thiamine, riboflavin, nicotinic acid and other B vitamins in the intestine.

The duration of the therapeutic effect is 7 hours.
